Super Soldiers: Tomorrow's 'Army of One' Technology

Further out, soldiers might benefit from nanotechnology, which can yield gear with features just nanometers, or billionths of a meter, wide. At these scales, materials can take on unusual properties not seen in their larger counterparts.

The Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies (ISN) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is developing sensors integrated into battlesuits to detect chemical and biological weapons, as well as countermeasures against those threats when encountered.
